Reasonable Modification

Under the Fair Housing Act, housing providers are required to allow changes to the structure of their rental, when such a change is reasonable and is necessary to allow a person with a disability the full use and enjoyment of the premises. Examples of reasonable modifications include ramps, grab bars, push door handles, or lowering the entry threshold of a unit. Reasonable modification costs are typically paid by the tenant, but public housing agencies and federally-assisted housing providers are required to pay for reasonable modifications.
